A couple of days ago, I got a wild hare to play Donkey Kong Country for Super Nintendo. Knowing I had the cables and games, but not the system, I asked around and was lucky enough to find a "working" console for free. Upon trying to power it on, the light was blank. I tried multiple outlets, still blank. I wasn't surprised by this (it was free after all), so I called various local businesses until I located a shop selling SNES consoles. I drove over, purchased one (with cables and controllers), and was happy to finally be on my way to Donkey Kong. Miserably though, I got home and found that the light wouldn't come on on this one either. With time to spare, I just went back to the store and exchanged it. I got the new one home and....power for a second, then nothing. Assuming at this point it was a bad power supply, I had the guy at the store give me a new one and test it with the machine (it worked just fine). When I arrived at home, I plugged it in, it started up just fine until....off again. New power supply, same result. What could possibly be happening? Somebody please help!
